    this may sound like a stupid question, when it says torque to spec, what does it mean? how do you know that you have torqued to spec?
    I'm still new to this and trying to learn quickly.

    "Torque" refers to the amount of force required to tighten the nut. Some nuts need/are designed to be tighter than others for the car to stay together and operate safely. Using too much torque can ruin a nut/bolt/equipment. The correct amount of torque/tightness for each bolt is specified by Subaru/Manufacturer. A lot of DIY's list the correct torque, but I believe they are also listed on maintenance manual sites, though I don't recall off hand what that link is. You might call a local Subaru dealer/maintenance shop if you can't find it by Google/search.
